As people still have many unanswered questions about the tragic shooting at Covenant in Nashville, Tennessee, the FBI is reportedly attempting to suppress the release of the manifesto that would shed light on the transgender shooter’s motives.

The call to suppress the contents of the manifesto has been echoed by lawmakers, including Republican lawmakers such as Representative Tim Burchett (R-Tn.) who believes that it is too dangerous to be released to the public.

Local law enforcement has said that some parts of the manifesto should be released, but not parts detailing Hale’s plans to attack other schools as it could be used as a ‘blueprint’ by other mass shooters.

Criminologists have scrutinized the decision not to release the manifesto, with some saying that it is politically motivated to prevent criticism of transgender activists who may have played a role in Hale’s decision to attack Covenant.

While few details have been released about the manifesto, local authorities clarified that Hale chose to attack Covenant specifically because it was a Christian school.

The Post Millenial Reports

In the weeks since trans-identified shooter Audrey Hale massacred three adults and three children at a Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee, details have emerged shining light on what led her to carry out the brutal attack. A comprehensive manifesto was recovered, however its contents have not been released.

Lawmakers familiar with the matter have warned of the horrible things included in Hale’s manifesto.

As the New York Post reports, Tennessee Rep. Tim Burchett suggested that the manifesto “could maybe tell us a little bit about what’s going on inside of [Hale’s] head.” He warned that perhaps it should not be made available to the public, rather only the families of those killed and members of Congress.

Metro Nashville Council Member Courtney Johnston stated that according to her sources, the document was “a blueprint on total destruction,” adding that “it was so, so detailed at the level of what [Hale] had planned.” She also cautioned against releasing it to the world, noting that while some parts should be made available, the document in its entiretly “in the wrong person’s hands would be astronomically dangerous.”
